Are you collecting these movies for a doomsday vault? When the apocalypse happens, im crashing at your place lol.

Just to add to your excellent summary, with DirecTV 4K, the HLG HDR ( channels 104-106 ) signal will cause the TV to load the HDR-10 picture mode ( technicolor Expert ), and uses the HDR-10 calibration settings. The picture looks fabulous.

We liked it too. It left me a little depressed though. Harding is no saint, and clearly made some bad choices (who hasn't?), but that poor girl had nearly everything going against her except her phenomenal skating talent. Interesting NYT article/interview here. That's my one OT post for the week. (We're allowed one per week, right?)

Well let’s face it no $400 TV is going to have a great picture, but the higher end LCDs do look very good. My 65X900E in numerous scenarios holds its own very well against my LG C7.

As has been noted, the head is right down the hall, and my beverage is within reach. If there's more to wish for, within reason, I dunno what it would be.
I think it's all relative, too. If I just had my 65C7P, I'd be at the theater a lot. That TV is my bedroom TV! Thankfully, movie room with projector/screen is the real deal downstairs, OLED-contrast be damned!

Not me...SDR is hard for me to watch knowing what HDR can do. It's why I only go to the Dolby Cinema or IMAX Laser theaters if I go at all.

Like I said - to each his own, and it's all relative. I think if you set up a badass movie room you'd change your mind. 65" TVs are comparatively tiny!

I like HDR fine, but I find the highlights to hurt my eyes.

Home audio system

Everyone has been talking how good their home video is compared to a movie theater. Of course it is, you have an oled by LG.

But how good is your audio? What are you using for your home audio?

The best part of my 5.1 system is the Buttkickers in my sofa. Not my dual twelve inch 1000 watt subwoofers. Or my old school 10 inch Klipsch LRs. Can't brag about my AVR as it cost like $200 new. If I got a fancy new expensive AVR maybe it would sound better or maybe not as I have a really difficult open floor plan room with a tile floor. Plenty of reverbs.

My son has a LG OLED55B7A with 7.1 sound in his rectangular, carpeted room. When he plays his games, the sound is amazing.

My C7 is in our living room and not a dedicated HT room, so big speakers, lots of wire, and complicated receiver control systems are a no-go. I bought the 2016 Nakamichi 7.1 Pro soundbar system shortly before they announced their newer 2017 DTS:X lineup. Given my restrictions, I find it hard to imagine a better solution, especially at the $500 price point. It's a terrific system, especially after a little experimentation and calibration. If I were buying again today, I guess I'd probably err on the side of spending the extra $150 on the 7.1 DTS:X system, which has improved drivers (at least theoretically - I'm not aware of any side-by-side tests), a little more codec support, and some other niceties. But I'm not going to go selling off my 2016 model just for that. I can't recommend Nakamichi's products highly enough, and their support is spectacular.

It's in my sig, Atmos 5.1.2. My game room is around 900 cubic feet so it's easy to fill that space with sound, especially with my PSA 15v sub. I can get down to 15hz thanks to room gain and easily get output above reference level.

Forgot to mention that for watching regular TV I just use the TV speakers in my C7P. My 5.1 is only for movies. The last year or so I had a soundbar for my old plasma, and for the B7A (that I had for like 2 months). The sound bar was great but a pain in the ass. I was so happy that the C7P has great (for TV speakers) sound! Could get rid of the soundbar.

He did say they're all ripped from disc. That's a lot of ripping time, but I see no reason to disbelieve it. I can certainly imagine friends and family dumping off 1000's of discs (cumulatively) on him. Plenty of people just want all their discs out of their house at this point.

Don't even have space for an exercise machine, let alone screen and projector.

One person could acquire and rip that many disks. It'd take a tidy sum and thousands of hours. Not impossible. The BDs have been on the market for longer than 10 years, which means that he'd have to average ripping only a couple of disks per day. Even if the cost of the disks was about the average of mine ($15, I'd guess), that'd only be on the order of $100kUS. The NAS should cost significantly less than that.

I shouldn't have suggested that the poster is a pirate.

Would "maniac" be OK?

They also said many/most were gifts that were from family, friends, etc. when you count multi disc movies, and especially TV it’s not THAT far out of possibility.

As far as the storage goes, it can cost a small fortune to set up a system that large depending on how it’s done (rack, server, HDDs). If he/she has multiple burners you could go easily 6 discs in about an hour (and probably less). It’s not THAT time consuming.

As far as cost of discs, you can get them for MUCH cheaper than $15USD these days, either way since many were gifts the cost is moot. We have folks from all walks of life here (if you want a look at the “high life” there is the Ultra High End section of the forums. This is why I never think bad at 1st on these forums. There are quite a few VERY well off members here.

I think the barrier to having 7000 movies is much more about time than money. The first 1000 movies from discs... sure, that takes some money, assuming they're reasonably popular movies. But 7000? There are going to be lot of... marginal movies there. It's not hard to imagine scooping those up in lots for extremely reasonable prices.
